Computer won't shut down

Hi! I've just installed my Win 7 and configured a few things in Bios.

I've got Gigabyte Z87N-wifi, connected to Samsung SSD which is used as a system drive. I disabled showing up the Gigabyte's logo on the start up and enabled ultra fast starting of the operating system.

So, I've got two problems now!

One, my PC can't be turn off or go into hibernation mode! I mean, it can shut down, but it's powering itself on after a few seconds.

Second, I can't launch Bios any more (maybe because I disabled the Gigabyte logo on the system start up).

It's pretty hilarious, but, what should I do?? :D

  1. if the bios values u entered malfuntioned then it will autmaticaly reset if you remove the power and start after a while , u can always upgrade/install bios from gigabytes site
  2. If your motherboard has a clear cmos switch press it, if not it will be 2 pins that you need to short with a screwdriver. This will reset your motherboard settings.

    Go to page 31 of the manual it shows you how to reset the bios.

    "13) CLR_CMOS (Clear CMOS Jumper)
    Use this jumper to clear the BIOS configuration and reset the CMOS values to factory defaults. To clear
    the CMOS values, use a metal object like a screwdriver to touch the two pins for a few seconds.
    Open: Normal
    Short: Clear CMOS Values
    •• Always turn off your computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before clearing
    the CMOS values.
    •• After system restart, go to BIOS Setup to load factory defaults (select Load Optimized Defaults) or
    manually configure the BIOS settings (refer to Chapter 2, "BIOS Setup," for BIOS configurations)."

  4. Cleared the cmos values, that solved the problem. Apparently, setting the ultra fast booting disabled the keyboard, and I couldn't run Bios.

    Thanks! :)
